    1. I started reading this book almost two years ago and finished on Thursday night, after a lengthy pause. The problem wasn't boredom; the problem was the small font, since it was published in 1995. For anyone interested in recent Canadian political history I highly recommend this book. The book details just how rapacious was the corruption during the Mulroney era. Apparently a large majority in Parliament creates a sense of impunity. The government controls all of the levers of power, with frighte [...]


    2. This book is not about policy, it is about corruption. Brian Mulroney's Progressive Conservative government spent 9 years in office during which time flagrant kick-back schemes, bid-rigging on government contracts, misappropriation of parliamentary budgets and patronage appointments were the norm. This regime caused the Canadian people to loose faith in their government and to then crush a once proud political party. Mila's shopping sprees sounds like a clone of Imelda Marcos. You have to wonder [...]



    3. This is an impressive piece of investigative journalism. The stories from the Mulroney era make Canada look like a banana republic. The volume of evidence is mind-numbing. This isn't only illegal corruption (kick-backs, bid-rigging, etc.), but also all the legal means by which Mulroney rewarded his friends. The use of patronage to find sinecures for party bagmen (even secretaries and girlfriends of political operatives) is sickening. Mulroney and his wife Mila comes across as shallow, opportunis [...]


    4. A great reminder how politicians never do what they say they are going to do and how they only really look out for themeselves and their friends.It gets a bit bogged down in some spots, but it is a good read, with a federal election coming up next year
